How to Choose a Wedding Cake
How to choose a wedding cake is one of the more popular searches among newly engaged couples.
Whether you dream of a large cake with five tiers that features all your favorite flavors or you want something simple that looks elegant, you need to know what to look for and how to choose that cake.
Here at Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club, we want you to find a cake that will look perfect on your wedding day.
Think About Size
One of the first things you need to think about is the overall size of the cake. The Knot recommends estimating between 50 and 100 guests for every three tiers that you serve. If you have a large guest list, you might need a cake with five tiers or even more. When you opt for multiple tiers, you have the option of selecting the same flavors for each tier or picking completely different flavors for each one to give your guests more options.
Factor In Your Budget
If you watch television shows on the Cooking Channel or Food Network, you know how expensive wedding cakes sometimes are. Fondant decorations that resemble fresh flowers or your monogram will add to your overall cost.
At Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian club, we remain committed to helping couples have the perfect wedding. You can book a package with us that comes with everything you need on your special day, including rooms to get ready in that morning, banquet halls and even professionals who can help you select the perfect cake. All-inclusive packages can also help you get more for your money and bring your wedding in at an affordable price.
Arrange for a Tasting
When searching Google on how to choose a wedding cake, some couples find themselves distracted by all the great designs and forget that they want a cake that tastes as great as it looks. Before hiring any baker or bakery, arrange for a testing session first. During this tasting, you’ll have the chance to sample cakes, frosting flavors and even fillings. Make sure you notify the baker ahead of time regarding any dietary restrictions you have. They can make custom flavors that are free of wheat, dairy products, gluten and any other ingredients you or your future spouse cannot eat.
Think About Decorations and Colors
